Tees form a “T” shaped cross to connect three tubes of the same diameter using a push-in connection in all ports. The ports can have different sizes in reduction Tees to connect 3 tubes with 2 different diameters.
There are also Tees with 2 push-in ports and one threaded port.
Y fittings are a variant of tees and form a “Y” with three ports for the same diameter tubing. Reducing Y fittings are also available to connect larger diameter tubes to two smaller diameter tubes.
Cut the hose so that the end of the hose is straight cut and not compressed. Use our USAG hose shortener, for instance. Press the hose into the port of the fittings until you feel a small click.
Push the release ring inward toward the fitting to release the locking mechanism and retract the hose to remove it. Be careful not to remove the hose when it is pressurized.
